West Ashley Veterinary Clinic is a full-service facility offering pet care services from preventative to emergency medicine. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we are able to provide truly advanced medical care. We have a full range of diagnostic laboratory equipment, a complete pharmacy, digital x-ray, and specialized treatment rooms for endoscopy and ultrasound. The addition of our rigid laparascopy equipment has allowed us to offer specialized and in-depth ear examinations. We are also able to measure intraocular pressure to diagnose and monitor glaucoma with our Tonovet machine. Our in-house lab features dermal, urine, fecal, microscopic and specialized blood tests. We can obtain immediate results in critical situations and utilize our large outgoing lab for more extensive testing if necessary.
Our doctors and staff are committed to preventative medicine. We recommend complete yearly physical examinations for our patients, during which we are able to provide additional preventative care such as vaccines and routine lab tests. Further health care recommendations, such as medication, diet and exercise are made on the basis of our examination findings and our patients' lifestyles. Our doctors routinely attend continuing education classes to ensure that they are informed about the most recent technological and medical advancements. Even so, if presented with a case that lies beyond our skill or comfort level or that requires specialized imaging such as a CAT scan or MRI, we are able to refer our patients to a board-certified specialist in our area.
We feel that we appeal to the local community due to our practical application of medicine and our caring attitude towards our patients. We are advocates not only for the pets who walk through our doors, but for the people who own and love them as well.
